Default Sneaking


I tip-toe in a kimono
Shoguns and samurais sleep, Yogibear-snoring troubles away.
Slowly I unsheathe glinting katana's

I can imagine tip toeing in a kimono rather restricting.
Geisha comes to mind.
I had to look up

unsheathe and katana.

Hello Yonathan.
I am trying to visualise this piece and it reminds me of Kill Bill.
Do you know it?
There is a Tarantino there somewhere too.

I know Kill Bill, it's supposed to feel like Ghost In The Shell.
